Big Weather South
We all like to discuss the weather, but what real impact does it have on our lives? Does it make us hardy and resourceful, or shape a region's character? And what of future climate change for the South? In Big Weather South, Dave Cull's robust, colourful prose captures our dramatic weather events: floods, droughts, gales, snowstorms and boiling seas. He examines our island location, and answers questions about the genesis of fog, frost, cold fronts and thunderstorms - with Maori tales enriching the narrative throughout. The reader is blown across the South's coastal regions, the mountains and hill country, the plains and basins, and exposed to violent weather events of the past. With breathtaking colour photographs by the award-winning team at the Otago Daily Times, Dave Cull offers weather watchers vigorous insight into Southern weather.
